Living on the margins – existing
Dreaming of a better life – persisting
Reaching out for freedom – groping
Adrift on open waters – hoping.
Washed upon a foreign shore – confused
Dazed, dizzy, destitute – bemused
Children’s pleading tearful eyes – implore
Politicians, pinstriped suits – ignore.
Familiar now upon our plasma screens
Are we so immune to sights obscene
maybe we could do a little more
For all those cast upon a Christian shore.
